The 30-year-old, who was wrongfully convicted and imprisoned for murder in Italy, will interview such figures as Amber Rose and teen rape survivor Daisy Coleman. Scarlet Letter Reports will look at how these women were "sexualised, scrutinised and demonised" by the media and how they've since re-built their lives. The series will take place over five episodes.

"While on trial for a murder I didn't commit, my prosecutor painted me as a sex-crazed femme fatale with magical powers to control men," Knox said in a statement provided by Vice.

"I lost years of my life to prison because of two-dimensional and misogynist stereotypes. In The Scarlet Letter Reports, I'm hoping to re-humanise others who have been similarly shamed and vilified, and elevate the standard for how we think and talk about public women."

Knox was studying for a her year abroad in Perugia, Italy, when she was convicted of killing her roommate, Meredith Kercher in 2007. She was sentenced to 26 years in prison, served nearly four of them, and was officially exonerated in 2015.
